Location:


The Netherlands is famous for its achievements in the arts and has brought forth many famous artists. For example, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Mondriaan, Appel (painters) and Berlage, Koolhaas and Rietveld (architects), to name a few. There are hundreds of outstanding museums, exhibitions and festivals to visit and promising artists from all over the world still come to the Netherlands to work or study.

Utrecht is becoming increasingly famous for its excellent festivals, including its 'Cultural Sundays'. The university center 'De Uithof' has some of the best modern architecture in The Netherlands. The Dutch economy is very internationally oriented. Trading of services and products plays an important role, as does the transport sector (Rotterdam harbour, for instance, is one of the largest harbours in the world).

Trade includes the export of food, chemical products and machinery such as computer parts. The Netherlands is one of the largest exporters of agricultural products worldwide, including the tulip bulbs and diary products that the Netherlands is famous for.

Many multinational companies are based in the Netherlands, including banks, chemical companies and dredging businesses. These include Akzo Nobel, Shell, Unilever, Philips, Heineken and the ABN- AMRO bank.
